A color professional’s must-have when thoroughly evaluating best printing options!

Thanks to advancements in printing technology, designers and printers have more color printing choices than ever before. Spot Color is the preferred printing option by most brands but sometimes challenging to achieve economically so process color choices might be considered. Pantone delivers the perfect visual tools for making economic and time-conscious color printing decisions. The BRIDGE-TO-SEVEN Set includes the PANTONE PLUS SERIES COLOR BRIDGE Coated and the EXTENDED GAMUT Coated Guides. When compared side-by-side, one can quickly see how a closely PANTONE Spot Color can be matched to either a CMYK four-color or our new Extended Gamut seven-color process printing methods.

The PLUS SERIES COLOR BRIDGE features 1,733 market-proven solid color choices as well as their side-by-side comparable CMYK printed representations together in one convenient guide.

The EXTENDED GAMUT Coated guide is printed with an extremely high quality, seven-color printing process using existing Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black (CMYK) inks plus commonly used Orange, Green and Violet (OGV) inks that ‘extend’ the color gamut significantly. EXTENDED GAMUT Coated Guide page and color numbers mirror exactly those of the COLOR BRIDGE Coated Guide for your convenience when reviewing together.
This set includes color indexes for fast color lookup and a lighting evaluation tool (included in the COLOR BRIDGE Coated Guide only) to ensure your ambient lighting conditions are right for color evaluation.
